|This is the Christmas Tree of Salvation. I made it out of the kit you sent me.|
I've since made the tree to teach gospel truths.
Well it's been another week down here. Everyone is gearing up for Christmas, putting up trees, hanging lights on houses, just loads of festive frivolity! They have told me a little bit about the Skype call. We can make it anytime between December 23-26 so you can choose which day. Also mom, I don't know if you've realized it but I still have a little bit more than a year to go (you can make it!!!!!) so I think it's a bit early for President to say something about my release date. My guess though is that I should be back before Christmas 2014.
Weird people Elder Johnson spoke with this week:
There was one guy who called me a werewolf. Apparently there was a story that the missionaries are also werewolves and they transform at night so that's why they have to be back home by 9:00 pm.
We also spoke with this guy at a member’s house. I asked him his name and he responded: " Hmmmmm.... My name...... I don't think I'm at liberty to tell you my name right now." The member then proceeded to invite him to church, but he didn't have any of it. He started to say really weird things like: "When you have a religion, you have to know that it is true, and you do that by analyzing it, by the way that it is." Just lots of nonsense, I thought it was hilarious.
We also had a baptism! WOOOO!! First baptism as senior companion and therefore a great confidence builder! It was a pretty great experience. Our investigator was really happy and we had a ton of the members from the ward there. My son was able to baptize her, it was an amazing day, the spirit was really strong, people were happy, and Elder Johnson has more confidence now!
Well that's it for now. Our district leader called and told me I'm up for round two here in Jardim do Horto, which really wasn't that big of a surprise. We've got some other investigators that are progressing; we just need to get them married first. Hope all is going well living in the land of the ice and snow. Until next Monday!
P.S. I wasn't fat.
P.P.S. I really wasn't.
